      Amarillo Zoo plans to expand holiday show in 2014

      V isitors took the last tour of the holiday season for the Z oo Lights Safari at the Amarillo Zoo with thousands of lights and some special guests.

      Children enjoyed an arts and craft center and zoo officials opened up the Education Center where some reptiles were out for the last night.

      E vent Coordinators Mike Boley said because of bad weather they had to cancel a few nights, so next year the zoo plans to expand its event days.

      "S o we're hoping a lot of folks will see this as a new family tradition in Amarillo." Boley said. "Next year, we're expanding, we're building more lights, hopefully we'll have the entire zoo filled next year with lights."

      V isitors are also invited to ring in New Year's at the Amarillo Zoo for Happy Zoo Year.
